Congrats Dan, You the MAN!
Have you ever considered using the ath5k or ath9k for your Atheros device? I got mine to work and I can't tell you how nice it is to install any flavor of Linux and know for sure that my Wireless drivers are available in the kernel. No more MadWifi for me.

I can't really confirm or deny signal strength difference because when I used Madwifi I also used KWifiManager but when I started using athk5 I also started using WICD. WICD does display a better strength than KWifiManager did but that could mean very little. Sorry I couldn't help more. I was getting a few more disconnects when using the MadWifi drivers...I always did have a little bit of trouble with them but they worked.
If you wanna give the ATH5/9K a try, just let me know and I'll try to help.

No matter what I tried, we just couldn't get decent upload times with the Atheros wireless device and ath_pci. The file is very large and it was taking more than thirty minutes for it to upload. I thought about trying the athk5 as mentioned by MikeTbob but we decided wired was our best option. lspci returned:

I'm really glad I kept a record here of what all I did to get the 701 going with CRUX 2.5 because I'd forgotten about many of the issues I had to overcome. I have two other 701s I want to upgrade to something newer so I think I'll go with one of the distros out there now specifically for the EEE PC. Any suggestions? I'm leaning toward BrowserLinux
Update on the machine that initiated this thread:
No matter what I did, the process for recording the file and sending it via ftp was to great of a challenge for some of the operators. I had the idea to simply install a Shoutcast server on the machine and have it send the service to us as a stream where we collect it as a sound file and edit for re-broadcast. All that is needed now is for them to simply turn the machine on. That's it! As long as it has audio piped into it from their mixer board, everything works and is much simpler now.

My big deal was moving /home to 16 gig secondary SSD Drive and then Symlinking to / 4 gig drive after virgin install. Then editing /etc/fstab also. Lastly limiting writes to SSD with some help from Reed9.
Whatever you decide to do. Happy rails, Rok
